Keto refers to ketones, chemicals used by the body for energy when carbs are scarce or not available. Ketogenic diets first gained popularity in 1972 with the publication of Dr. Robert Atkins’ book “Dr. Atkins’ Diet Revolution,” which advocated severely limiting carbohydrates and ignoring fat intake altogether.
Despite complaints from critics that high-fat diets are hard on the heart — exacerbated by Dr. Atkins’ own history of heart attacks, congestive heart failure and hypertension — the Atkins diet generated new interest in the mid-1990s, as further studies and the release of the made-for-TV movie “…First Do No Harm” documented the numerous positive effects of a ketogenic diet.
These days, in addition to weight loss, studies have linked keto diets to lower insulin levels, reduced hypertension and lower blood lipid levels — all risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease.
Of course, the trick is to actually get into ketosis — and that’s where Bang® Keto Coffee comes in! A 2017 study documented that caffeine dosed at 2.5 milligrams per kilogram of body weight (approximately 162 mg based on the average weight of study participants) produced an 88% increase in ketone production. When dosed at 5 mg/kg (about 325 mg of caffeine based on the average weight of study participants), ketone production increased a whopping 116%!
Bang® Energy Keto Coffee contains 300 mg of caffeine and just one gram of sugar per can, making it the perfect drink for those on a ketogenic diet or those looking for a healthy alternative to lattes and other sugary, protein-deficient coffee drinks.
What is STRAIGHT 8®?
STRAIGHT 8® is a pure form of caprylic acid (C8), a medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) found naturally in foods like coconut, palm and butter. MCTs are sent directly to the liver, where they are used instantly for energy or converted into ketones (discussed above).
The advantage of STRAIGHT 8® is that it is absorbed more quickly than regular MCTs, making the transition to ketosis easier (to achieve ketosis, one typically needs to eat fewer than 20-50 grams of carbs per day). Just a small increase in caprylic acid levels in the bloodstream increases ketone production dramatically and, even more exciting, this increased production will occur even if there are moderate amounts of glucose in the bloodstream along with the C8.
In other words, caprylic acid converts to ketones whether one is in ketosis and adhering to a keto diet or not. And STRAIGHT 8® has benefits beyond aiding ketosis — it’s also great at giving one an energy boost prior to and during training.
For those using it as a pre-workout drink, having a Bang® Energy Keto Coffee on an empty stomach, 30-45 minutes before going to the gym, is ideal. (Testing has demonstrated that taking caprylic acid without food raised ketone levels far more than when taking it with food.)
